Laser Surgery

Preparation

Because laser surgery is used to treat so many dissimilar conditions, the patient should ask his physician for detailed instructions about how to prepare for a specific procedure. Diet, activities, and medications may not have to be limited prior to surgery, but some procedures require a physical examination and a medical history that:

  • determines the patient's general health and current medical status
  • describes how the patient has responded to other illnesses, hospital stays, and diagnostic or therapeutic procedures
  • clarifies what the patient expects the outcome of the procedure to be
